The win over Lipscomb at David Lipscomb tied MCHS for 1st place in District 8AA rankings.
In an article appearing in Monday's Tennessean, MCHS Senior guard Heather Moore was quoted as saying, ''It makes us feel good about ourselves. I don't think we have beat Lipscomb in three years. They came in and beat us in our gym, but we beat them more than they beat us, so I think we accomplished what we wanted to.''
David Lipscomb led 37-33 at the beginning of the fourth quarter, but Macon County's Jocosa
Scott hit a 3- pointer with 5:39 remaining to cut the Lady Mustangs' lead to two. Then, two free throws from Kristen Wix tied the score at 40-40 with 5:07 remaining.
Scott then tipped a Lipscomb pass. Moore picked up the ball, sprinted the length of the court and was fouled on her lay-up attempt. Moore made one of her two free throws to give the Tigerettes the lead, then followed with a 3-pointer to put Macon County ahead 44-40 with 3:59 left.
Lipscomb pulled within two, but another 3-pointer from Moore, her fourth of the night, put Macon County ahead 47-42 with 1:29 remaining.
With the Lady Mustangs in a situation where they had to foul the Tigerettes, MCHS connected on 6-of-9 free throws to protect their lead.
''I keep telling them there are crucial baskets during the game,'' Macon County Coach Gary Carter told a Tennessean reporter. ''There are crucial shots, crucial rebounds, and crucial turnovers. Last game we missed the crucial shot, we turned it over at crucial times and we missed a big rebound, but this game we got those things.''
